The Godfather Says He Was Set To Join The nWo

Posted By Caroline Walsh on 06/12/18


In the latest episode of Photo Shoot on the WWE Network (via Wrestling Inc), The Godfather revealed that at one point he was set to leave the WWE and join the nWo in WCW. Here are highlights:

He said: “My [WWE] contract was coming up, and I was in negotiations with WCW coming into the nWo as their bodyguard. And we had arranged a verbal contract. The price was over a three-year deal. And then, I didn’t hear from them, and I called the people that I needed to talk to and they weren’t returning my calls. And then I’m watching the show one day, and I see Virgil come out as the bodyguard of the nWo. I would assume that somebody in the nWo said, ‘hey, we could probably get Virgil [for] a lot cheaper, and he’s known as a bodyguard.’ So, Virgil went there a lot cheaper than what I was gonna go there for. So, I don’t really have good feeling over that at all.”

He said that while he’s bothered that he lost that contract, it worked out as the Godfather was born “so it’s even better.” He said he’s not mad at Virgil, because “Virgil is Virgil.”
